Show and Tell ~ Reichswehr Flask Bottle

No dainty roses or sentimental keepsakes this time for Show & Tell Friday.
Instead I have an interesting bottle/flask that was given to us by a cousin of John's.

We first met him at our Family Reunion almost three years ago.
The flask was among some wonderful items in the basement of his parents home.
Little is know about it but it is indeed interesting. 
A view of the front.

Obviously German, this glass bottle is a beautiful dark amber color with
very clear words and design.

I don't have any old bottles but I sure like to see them. A blog friend in Iowa has been cleaning out his parents garage and has found many old, old bottles.
Thanks for sharing this one Lorraine.

That is a beautiful bottle. The detail is incredible. You should do some research it could be very rare.

Wow....what a treasure. It's kinda sad to see the colored glass bottles are less and less used...all clear glass anymore...this is a great piece.
